About the event

Our latest play is a family drama set in 12th century Britain surrounding the competition for the throne between Richard Lionheart, John and the ever unfortunate Geoffrey, while Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitane play favourites. A witty and dramatic comedy which shows even the famous royalty of history have just as many familiar family dramas as anyone.
